Tasteful Friends: $12 million penthouse on the UWS of Manhattan

The main room is stunning, but the bedrooms are poky and the cobbled-together triplex layout is awkward. Also, I expect updated bathrooms for 12 mil.

Inside a $12M Penthouse On NYC's Upper West Side | Architectural Digest

Join 'Million Dollar Listing New York' star Steve Gold as he takes you on a tour of a $12 million dollar Upper West Side penthouse apartment. Situated above ...

Been on the market for awhile.

A Memphis Design legend is behind this $19M Upper West Side penthouse

Italian designer Ettore Sottsass worked with the penthouse’s owner to create basically everything in this enormous triplex penthouse.

by Anonymousreply 203/14/2019

The proportions of the place are all wonky. Ceilings are too high, some rooms too big, some rooms too small. Great views, but I'd bring in an architect to attempt to make some sense of the place.

I liked this penthouse when it came on the market with a prior owner (and interior design), but the Memphis school makes me want to CLAW MY EYES OUT and eat them for breakfast.

Good lord, its hideous!

I wonder if you could just turn it into two stories, no mezzanine.

by Anonymousreply 1403/14/2019

The mezzanine is structural. The great room couldn't exist without it.

by Anonymousreply 1503/14/2019

I meant, keep the structure of the mezzanine, but extend it and make it into a whole floor. Still have the great room, but with a lower ceiling.

I thought the bathroom was okay, I don’t think it needed renovation. There was just a patch of dark brown tile that I didn’t like.

They should have shot that video in the spring or when the light is warmer. That terrace looks unwelcoming, but it's not.

by Anonymousreply 2103/14/2019

I don't mind it, but that snow. Ugh. They couldn't have removed it for the shoot?

That great room could make a person feel lonely, it's so huge.

That enormous TV at the foot of the bed would drive me straight over the edge into the oversized great room. Why do people do that?

by Anonymousreply 2203/14/2019

That wouldn't work, R16. That's the way the building is built. It's not a modernization.

by Anonymousreply 2303/14/2019

Couldn't they have found someone a tad more sophisticated to present this apartment in this video?

Gainsborough Studios has nicer, better proportioned, though smaller apartments in the same artist’s studio idiom. That’s where I’d live if I had this kind of money.

by Anonymousreply 2803/14/2019

No Manhattan realtor ever says something is small, even when one can hardly move around a queen sized bed in a space.

Oh and this kitchen, it's fully functional!

This apartment below has been on and off the market for years, may have sold several times. Its a few steps from the penthouse posted. It's always caught my eye. It's what I always pictured when I imagined a large two story apartment. It's got the standard McMansion living room that I always wanted as a child, in a finely crafted classic building.

R3 is correct. The overall effect is wonky at best. The space could be beautiful, but it does need a lot of help to get there. I appreciate Ettore Sottsass and have some of his Alessi and ceramic pieces in my home, but a great furniture designer he was not. The art itself, it's positioning and those wacky shelves are all terrible - REALLY BAD. The dated track lighting looks like something that was discarded after a cheap 1970's apartment building was leveled to make room for new condos in south Florida. I love the windows and the roof deck is stunning. 1980's kitchens and bathrooms look like Hell period - I don't care who designed them. Keep the spirit, but use newer, sleeker materials and get rid of all of that mold and rotten grout. You can work with the high ceilings pretty easily, you just have to try a little harder. Here is a hint - don't hang art up the fucking roof. If a piece goes that high, it better take up most of the wall. This apartment looks like it was designed by an 18 yoa straight college student who has no interest whatsoever in either architecture or design.

r30 I like that apartment a lot. It's very "Margo Channing."

R25. “He” is DL favorite Steve Gold, realtor and former model from Million Dollar Listing New York. His sexuality is much discussed on innumerable MDLNY threads, but he’s supposedly straight. Great body, very sexy, despite not knowing how to pronounce triplex. Ugly apartment.

This apartment #909, in the same building is so much better . It seems like it still has it's original details.

Thank you, r42. I wonder if it was originally two apartments. One of the bathrooms is laid out like a kitchen.

I used to live on 69th between Columbus and Broadway, and I would walk across 67th Street every morning to walk to work. One of those blocks people dream of living in when they move to New York.

The bedrooms are poky? They're slow? Are your bedrooms speedier?

by Anonymousreply 4703/14/2019

Poky in the other sense of the word, R47: uncomfortably small and cramped.

I agree that the apartment posted at R42 is miles above the originally posted apartment, in terms of both character and proportion.

by Anonymousreply 4803/15/2019

[quote]Also, I expect updated bathrooms for 12 mil.

For that money I expect a blow job, some serious fingering and a nice dinner.

by Anonymousreply 4903/15/2019

Yes, for $12 million I'd better have some hot thing on call to service me.

His body is my ideal. not too muscly or overly ripped and the perfect amount of body hair.

its over inflated in costs by 11 mill

What would the original apartment have cost in 1976, as just a duplex? $50,000?

by Anonymousreply 5603/16/2019

I love this apartment, especially the great room. Who cares about the Memphis decor? Practically all apts get redone anyways. My dream is one very grand room with high ceilings. The rest can be pokey.

by Anonymousreply 5703/16/2019

He's hot. That tufted couch bed is ridiculous. The rooms are like servants quarters but nothing says money in a Manhattan apartment like a two story great room.
